    Really trying to like this game but it's not for me. The battles are unsatisfying - mindless enemies, each encounter is very instanced & limited, and every character seems like they have the same personality.

    AMAZING Graphics! But thats it! The game is so boring and repetitive. How can this game get so high score is beyond me.

    This is one of those games that get high ratings just for not having terrible performace, bugs, having decent story but gameplay is 4/10, simply combat is not fun.

    One more **** port with outdated graphics and bad optimization, PC that can run Far Cry 5 on Ultra settings with 150% resolution with minimal 80FPS in action, is not enough to run this PS3 graphics even on high with 40-60... Btw, graphics quality looks worse, than The Last of Us on PS3, yes stylish, sometimes, but quality is Very Bad for such Requirements.

Btw, graphics quality looks worse, than The Last of Us on PS3, yes stylish, sometimes, but quality is Very Bad for such Requirements. They really tried to work around aesthetics and design, but Graphics (Complex of Technical and Visual solutions) suck, game that looks like PS3 generation soap, should not even ask something, that can run even ARK:SE on Ultra...
    Environment is very repetitive visually and become boring after time, there are just some different visual style and they repeat over and over again. (even FFXV show Twice better FPS, than this low res. texture simulator...)
    Controls as always no ported at all, just emulator quality, tbh even with Emulation DMC3 had much better controls for PC, than this unoptimised crap, such games should be banned for low quality.
    Story as always about nothing, boring and stupid.
    Music as always good, 3 points for Music, but overall sound-work sucks, game can't even handle 5.1 acoustic in 2019.
    Gameplay primitive, you have poorly animated mannequins to reach SSS combo and keysmash to reach SSS combo, or you can try to do it in your stylish way, but still boring....
    Also you can't play Hard from the beginning, so you are forced to replay this boring, repetitive and outdated crap, over and over again, to get Somehow Challenging experience...

    The only reason this game doesn't get a "0" is simply 'cos the graphics is pretty good - but boy does every other thing bout it suck!
    In summary, DMCV = (Stupid Story + Forgettable Enemies & Stupid looking Bosses + 3 Different Characters who use the same repetitive attack buttons) / Stupid Dialogues
    In fact, there couldn't be a greater diverging contrast between 2 games from the same

    In fact, there couldn't be a greater diverging contrast between 2 games from the same makers like DMCV and RE2 Remake; RE2 is amazeballs in every way (5 playthroughs already, and I'm still at it!) despite a minor dent in its gameplay mechanics, but DMCV needed another year in the workshop - honest. For such a "Big Game", the general vibe it exudes is just "silly and unserious" like the developers where making it to be a "Big Joke" instead.
    Past Nero's 1st? chapters and 2 into V's, and my fingers were getting the cramps! Like, when was the last time that happened?! Cos I'm literally mashing the same buttons throughout.
    Devil May Cry: DmC stills stands as my fave in the series; it had a cool story, cool graphics (for its time) and enjoyable gameplay! And you find it's only fans of the original who dis it.
    PS: Whoever came up with the silly idea of making a Devil Arm out of bananas, or spoons and forks, most definitely didn't take the making of this game seriously!

    Everyone talks about graphics and story, battle system is great they say. And it doesn't matter that Darksiders with same battle mechanics were unsuccessful, press 3 buttons to dodge, really? About music: anyone will disagree but I think that soundtrack at this game sucks. Even in DmC 4 it was better, and don't even speak about 2013 DmC. As a conclusion game is good (kind of) but not for all.

    The culmination of the franchise and so much more. Capcom is still putting up the pressure one notch above, with new mechanics, a renewed gameplay, and a replayability that will make you start the game a second time without losing your smile. The story has matured and a good balance has been found with its three destinies that intersect over the course of the missions, until its apocalyptic final. Only big downside in a game that requires precision in its highest difficulty levels: the camera problems and the targeting system.

    Bland location design aside, Devil May Cry 5 is excellent in all other aspects. Deep combat system, charismatic characters, nice graphics, vibrant soundtrack — this is one hell of a crazy-ass meaty slasher.

    DMC 5 takes the best from previous titles, like over the top action and nuanced battle system, adds a great new character and makes the best use of modern technologies. [Issue#236, p.20]
